22 Early-2000s Halloween Costume Ideas

The early 2000s were truly an epic time. Boy bands captured the hearts of choker-wearing tween girls, pop princesses ruled Hollywood with low-rise jeans and bared midriffs, and Disney Channel original movies were the peak of television greatness. With so many iconic looks and pop culture moments, it's no wonder this era became the inspiration behind Halloween costumes everywhere.

Whether you want to go for Britney Spears's "Oops!...I Did It Again" music-video look or dress up as Penny Proud from "The Proud Family," you can't go wrong with a 2000s costume. Not only are they cute and easy to DIY, but they will also immediately transport you and your friends back to the days of flip phones, Tamagotchis, and iPod Nanos. Hello, throwback.

If you can manage to choose a favourite from this list, any 20-something who experienced life from 2000 to 2010 will love your nostalgic costume choice.
